Courage Bear Release Party and Stamp Something Challenges

Isn't this sentiment awesome?! It's one of those sayings that gives me the shivers. It reminds me of our service men and women, those persons going through hard times put somehow pushing through, and even the little kid so scared to do something for the first time. It's that inner strength that says "there is no other option" . . .

This card was created with two challenges in mind. First of all, the 2nd release party challenge from PMS - play along and link up your card to SCS using keyword pmsrp17;
  • Use a large sentiment or quote - check
  • Use 3 or more layers - check
  • Use fall colors - sort of (modern fall colors maybe)
  • Add distressing - Gotta love Ranger distressing inks!
  • Add brads, eylets or something similar - Stick on 1/2 Pearls are the best!

The second challenge was the Stamp Something Challenge to use the color brown -somehow, someway. I used lots of coppery brown colors in this card so I thought I would link it up. This week's prize winner will receive a 12 marker set from icopics! How cool is that?

Today also marks 11 weeks before Christmas, do you know what that means? It means that Paper Makeup Stamps is offering another week long special - and it's a great one!! Place any order and get a small sentiment for free!! Better yet, for every $10 you spend, you can choose one free sentiment stamp!! Checkout the PMS Blog for all of the details. This special will last for one week only, so don't be a lazy - next Saturday a new special will be posted.

I'm off to run my weekend errands! Mail some packages, pick up some Marketday, Trip to Walmart, yada, yada, yada . . . maybe I'll take the long way past the local craft store ;0) Have great weekend!
